Jason and Maricel getaway 

Australian national Jason Offer and her Filipina fiancé Maricel originally booked for 3 days and 2 nights only at Coco Beach Island Resort. But after 3 days, the couple came back and stayed another 13 more nights as they could not get enough of Coco Beach.

During their stay, the couple did several activities like the free boat tour to one of Puerto Galera’s finest beaches, Snorkeling at Bonito Island with one of the boatmen, Tukuran Lagoon tour with friends and visiting Ponderosa Golf Club.



They were fascinated with the colorful marine life and beautiful rock formation they have seen during the free boat tour. Riding on a Carabao cart passing through the river and towering trees before they reached the Tukuran  lagoon was new to them and thrilled by the experience. They enjoyed swimming in the lagoon to their hearts content and love the serenity of the place.

We could not help but be proud when they said “ You know guys this is the best holiday we ever have, staffs were all friendly, we love your place and everything in here".

To you Jason and Maricel, thank you for all the kind words and for spending your holiday with us. Until next time!

Marinel Sarmiento's Family Vacation 

Marinel Sarmiento arrived at the Coco Beach Island Resort for 3 days/2 nights vacation with her sister and other relatives.  The group consisted of 16 persons stayed in the classic bungalow close to the beach.

At Coco Beach, the family went to Tamaraw Falls with activity coordinator Belyn. From Muelle port they rode a jeepney for 30 minutes before they reached Puerto Galera’s famous Water falls. They enjoyed swimming in the natural pool while basking in the scenic view.

After spending some hours in the falls the group continued to the Mangyan Village and made a short stop at white beach before heading back to Coco Beach.


On Sunday morning some of them went on a fishing trip and were very thrilled when they caught different kind of fishes. The kitchen crew cooked it for them for dinner.

The group shared that they would come back again as they find the place very cozy.  Service was so good, staffs were very accommodating and friendly especially the dining department.  They added also that you will never get bored while on vacation here as there are so many activities to choose from.

Just before leaving Maria Wilma, Marinel’s sister celebrated her 52nd birthday. During breakfast at the Carabao Restaurant the staff greeted her with birthday song and gave her a cake.

Thank you for spending your vacation with us.
